Early indications are; earnings reports will surprise on the upside. Supply chain interruptions caused by the COVID pandemic are pushing prices up, and demand supported by ample government stimulus is proving positive for profits. Companies are regaining pricing power. Central banks used to see this as inflationary, now they are calling it transitory.

The near complete halt of the economy in Q2-2020 from the COVID pandemic slowed productivity to minimize worker health and safety risks. Government and central bank support has sustained demand while supply has been restricted.

This is resulting in pricing power, rising revenues and profit margins for companies. The market's recovery from the pandemic has happened quickly with room for more growth barring any missteps from the central banks and with some government fiscal help. Anything governments can do to help matters a lot, remembering that it can be hit or miss when it comes to politics. The vaccination phase is struggling; a stricter regulatory approach is hopefully in the making. Comments this week look past central bank policy to see how current strategy is seeking to avoid previous missteps.
